THE DAILY AUG US
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tukrdat, July 23. 1889.
Tub price of beer has been raised to
ten cents in New York and the impecun
ious individual fails to cbasc the duck,
to fly the pigeon, to carry the banner, to
hunt the fox, to rush the growler, or roll
the rock with the usual frequency.
Tariff" and olt Export".
From the Chicago Nws.
A local high tariff journal expresses ap
pn lienston of reducing the gold reserves
of the country "below the point of moDe
tary stability." It adds: "This being a
Roiii and silver producing country, it can
anord to export a gooir ileal of both met-
ais in the settlement of trade balances,
but nearly 2i).(HK,0K) a month is laying
it on rather thick; or, rather, peeling it
otl rather fast.
But were not the people promised that
under the operations of our enormous
tariff taxation it would he impossible to
produce an ailvcrse United Slates trade
balance? Yet here we have, in spite of
our yearlv export of between $7K,iMHl.
KKt and S(Kt,(Mto,(KNt worth of agricul
tural products, an export of fjoM which
begins to alarm thewe liij;h protectionists
who Home time fince so stoutly contended
that such export wns iiuposxihli' under
existing fiictil conditions.
The central protect ionit idea. Mnee the
period when Spain, under Charles V.,
made the export of the precious metal a
penal offense, is that Mich export is ruin
ous to any country, the tin ory being that
every dollar sent out of the country is so
much dead loss thereto, and every dollar
imported is a dollur ptincd to the entire
On the other hand, the theory of unre
stricted trade is that the precious metals
are as much subject to the law of demand
and supply as any other commodity that
it is better that they should be exported
when they are dearer abroad than at
home, and vice versa.
At present the expansion of our cur
reney on account of the issue of over
valued silver dollars and the tfcneral de
pression of trade have made it profitable
to export gold to countries in w hich it is
more valuable, as compared with other
commodities, than it is with us. At the
same time this export lias the effect of
enabling us to keep our silver certificates
at par with gold, for it is a law of finance
that it is the quantity, not quality, of the
whole volume of a country's currency
which determines its Value.
Consequently, the present export of
gold, which our local high-tariff con
temporary looks upon with apprehen
sion, is in reality the only healthy means
of restoring the equilibrium of values be
tween currency anil products in the Uni
ted Slates, as compared with the equili
brium of values between currency and
products in the rest of the world.
The real danger in connection with it
is that if we continue to coin overvalued
sUver dollars the burden of keeping them
at par with gold will increase directly in
proportion to the increase in the entire
volume of our circulation.

Averill and the notorious cattle queen, Kate
Maxwell, were lynched by cowboys Sunday
nilit. The Uslies of the "rustler" and range
queen dandled from the same limb of a big
cottonwood yesterday morning. The scene
of this Inwles-. deed of the midnight riders is
on the Sweetwater river, in C'arlxiU county
near liides-ndisice Rock, a landmark made
historical during the rush overland to the
California cold fields. Averill was post

the heroine of a sensational story which ap

country three months as;o, when she raided a

London, July 23. Tho question of royal
grants came up in the commons yesterday on
the report of tbe committee appointed to con
sider what should be done with the queen's
demand for a grant for the Frlnce of Wales'
children. Gladstone and Morley were on the
committee, and the report as read by the
Conservative leader, Smith, proposes that
the Prince of Wales be given 9,000 addi
tional quarterly, at the same time maintain
ing the right of the qneeu to ak further pro
vision for her grandchildren. The debate on
the (pies; ion will take place Thursday.
Before tbe adjournment Laliotichere moved
the rejection of the report and the adoption
in lieu thereof of an address to tbe queen
stating that in the opinion of the house tbe
allowances aow made to the royal family
should suffice for all proiier purposes.
The Liberals Will Fii-hU
All the Liberal groups have at length
agreed upon a common plan of action, and
will oppose a solid front to tbe government's
proposal. 1 he h;bt will In made upon the
government's refusal to inom p. irate in the
proposed grants a stipulation that no fur
tlier allowances lie demai ded by the quuen
lor her grandchildren. The stipulation was
demalnbsl in the committee by both Glad
stone and Motley as tbe prim of their ad he
Fion to the present proposals of tbe govern
ment, and on the refusal of the Conserve
live memtiers to yield the point Morley and
several other Liberals voted against the pro
posal to increase the allowance to the l'rince
of W ales. Gladstone voted aye.
Itesnlt of the Vote Detlhtful.
The keenest party struggle of the session
may tie expect e.1 w hen the committee's re
sit conies up for consideration next Thurs
day. The outcome of the struggle, notwith
standing the large majority of the govern
ment on Irish questions is by no means a
foregone conclusion. Many of the Li tier a I
Unionists have indicated an intention to cut
loose from their Tory friends on this quest ion,
and there is no doubt . that tbe number ol
votes which the ministers will (v from de
fections of this sort will lie Mitli.'lelit to
reuder the result extremely doubtful.
The Feeling Against the Grants.
If any further evidence were needed of the
depths to which the F.nglish people have lieen
stirred by the proposal to. further pension
their royal figureheads, the fact that John
Morley finds it uecessary to write a letter to
his constituents in Newcastle defending bis
support of the grants would furnish it. Pro
tests (ram his bom have rained upon him so
thick and fast that he is compellel to defend
his conduct apd define his position in the
matter. It is generally believed that Mr.
Morley's attitude en this question has jeop
ardised his seat in parliament.
Notwithstanding tbe rain xured down in
torrents Saturday, thousands assembled in
Hyde park to protest against the proposed
royal grants. The speeches were radical,
and there was no mistaking the temper of
the crowd, who evidently were in no mood
to listen to any compromise with royalty.

Streator, Ills., July 23. Tbe first formal
session of tbe lnwird of arbitration between
the Coal Run Coal company and its miners
was held yesterday morniivg, and the board
will doubtless continue in session during the
greater portion of the week.
The two arbitrators, CoL Rend, of Chicago,
and J. E. Williams, of this city, were present,
as also was Fred H. Wines, of Springfield,
secretary of tbe state Ismrd of charities, and
one of the Isiiird that has just been investi
gating the inntter on the requestor Governor
Fifer. A stenographic report of the evidence
was taken, all witnesses being sworn. Tbe
miners' committee was also present. Lyman
J. tinge, of Chicago, has finally consented to
act as arbitrator.
The Cost of Production.
Fawcett Plumb was the first witness on
br half of the company nud his examination
was conducted by Col. Rem!. Mr. Plumb
said that the value of their plant was (115,
000, with a capacity of 4"0 tons of coal per
day. The nvernge selling price of their coal
for the last year was 91.31; at the mine.
The slack was sold to the coke works for 40
cents ier ton, and after deducting the re
ceipts from tins source the co-t ot lump coal
to the company for "dead work," etc., ex
clusive of nulling wages, was 110 ceuts per
ton. They had lieen unable to renew their
contracts with the rniiroad companies, even
at prices 1.1 cents less than last year.
tt hat Coal Sells For.
The Burlington and the Santa Fe are now
getting their coal from Peoria, the ilurling
ton imying f l.u. er ton, and lieforo the
Strike as low as tC cents. The S.inta Fe
otTers to carry coal to Chicago for . VI cents
per ton. But even at this rate the Slivntor
coal must lie put on the cars at 1. Ill to compete
with Mount'Olive coal in Chicago nt f 1.00.
Al nils iHiin; tot ilenil said that be was
now paying fl S5 fop Mount Olive coal.
whereupon Mr. Plumb immediately offered
him all the Streator coal he v. anted at that
H-ice. But Mr. Ueud did not want any. Sir.
i lumii sain tnui southern Illinois coal was
lieing put on I bo curs at .V1; cents per ton;
that it had driven his coal out of the market
at Fn-eport, Dubuque and other pl.-n-es, and
that he believed tho lepressioiiii the north
ern Illinois coal trade w as permanent.
'i lie Filed Kxpense Account.
P. S. Kempton, bookkeeper for the com
pany, was the next witness. He testified
that the fixed expense account was alsiut
f 1,0 4) per month, whether the mine was run
ning or not, or nliout 10 cents per ton on tbe
output from Jan. 1 to May 1; the p-neral
expensi-s were 2-" cents per ton and the props
5 cents additional, making a total of 40 cents
per ton expenses outside of miners' wages.
He corrolor.i!cd Mr. I'lumbas to tbe general
decrease m the selling of coal and the losing
of the railroad contracts.
A Miner Tells Ills Story.
Tntrick Butterfield, an old and respeotel
citizen, has been for twenty years a miner
in this coal tiehl. He swore that the deduc
tions for wiler, oil and other expenses
would reduce the price actually paid for
mining about 5 cents per tun His wages
during Janu.trr, March and April of this
year were f,i..V, fJT.lS and Jl!2. The
avera miner can dig about two and a half
tons tier day in Plumb's shaft, but tbe work
is far from regular, and at many times tbe
mine is overcrowded with men. Mr. But
terfield owns his own home and his son ar.d
daughter are self-supporting. Hi could not
live if he had a family to support.
